What I like about Japan / Japanese culture:

The thing that I like about japanese culture is how connected they still are to their roots and even still in this ever advancing world they still continue ancient traditions and the thing that I love about the japanese language is the way it makes one see the world because its so complex and different than other languages that it makes one learn it differently and see it differently than any other language.

What I hope to get from this adventure:

I hope to gain a better level of proficiency of japanese as well as immerse myself in the japanese culture and have a better understanding of it.
